What Was in the Box?

Windsor & Newton ProMarker

An expertly versatile alcohol marker, the ProMarker is a must-have, professional quality addition to any marker collection. Its blend-friendly, with a malleable, alcohol-based, translucent ink. Its also twin-tipped, with a broad chisel nib for fills one end and fine bullet nib for smaller details on the other. Both are very high quality nibs for consistent, streak-free coverage.

Sakura Pigma Micron 01

The first disposable technical pen to use archival ink, the Micron is favoured by artists worldwide. The high quality ink is acid-free, chemically stable, waterproof, and fade resistant. No smears, feathers, or bleed, through on most papers. The strong plastic tip is steel clad for strength and the small nib size gives you the ability to add some fine details to your work.

Sakura Pigma Black

Enjoy the same patented pigment based ink that Sakura is famous for in a convenient brush tip pen. The flexible tip responds to pressure and changes in direction, allowing you to draw in varying line widths. Thorough ink delivery to the sides and tip of the flexible felt brush make this a great line work pen.

Faber-Castell Pitt Artist Pen 1.5

Faber-Castell have combined all the advantages of artist’s inks with the benefits of a modern, easy-to-use artist quality pen. The pigmented white ink is water-resistant, permanent once dry and ideal for sketching on dark paper or adding highlights. Layer it up for more opaque whites to really make your work pop.

Faber-Castell 9000 Pencil

The CASTELL 9000 is a genuinely classic pencil, launched by Count Alexander von Faber-Castell himself way back in 1905. Its lead is fully bonded with the wood surround and is therefore particularly break-resistant. The ideal pencil for all technical and artistic applications. Available in a range of graphite grades but we have supplied you with the 2H which should be great to lightly sketch out your composition first.

Norfolk Cartridge Paper 210gsm

These paper sheets are 20% cotton, acid free and also include a small amount of Calcium Carbonate for pH neutrality. The ‘Liscia’ is a smooth textured finish, which is excellent for drawing, inking and colouring.
